Sunday, September 30, 2018 – M.V. Lukwa

The wildlife doesn’t mind the rainy weather.

The rainy weather couldn’t dampen the spirits of our adventurous guests today- and their perseverance was rewarded! Seals and sea lions were hauled out in their favourite places with Bald Eagles soaring overhead. Humpback Whales were lunge feeding on small schooling fish and then surprise… one started tail lobbing and another started breaching! After a great view of them we headed down Blackfish Sound and spotted the Killer Whales trying to escape from a large group of dolphins!

Don’t worry, we have lots of raingear!
